Very good. Bore is frosty, shows some evidence of pitting, but sharp rifling remains. Losses to finish on muzzle and raised edges primarily on left side most likely from holstering. Accoutrements show some discoloration. Holster shows signs of wear due to age, flap strap has ripped off of holster, is still attached to clasp. 

Estimate: $1,000 - $1,200
